Ocean of Ideas


It has been an extraordinary time of ideas.  I cannot seem to keep up with the numerous configurations popping into my mind at all hours of the day and night.  I should be happy, but instead I am feeling run down and exhausted by the sheer number of little pieces of paper floating around my desk.

How should I rememdy this conundrum?

I am grateful that a wind cannot blow them around like leaf litter.

What have I accomplished since April 2011?

Nothing. For lack of focus, my life is no different today, than a year ago.

Yet, the waters splash and keep me hopeful!

Where do I go from here? Persistance and perseverance are worth persuing. Here are my top ten people who persevered:

  1. Corrie ten Boom
  2. Mother Theresa
  3. Helen Keller
  4. Gandhi
  5. Abraham Lincoln
  6. To be determined…

The one thing they all have in common, beyond being persistant, is their peaceful journey. They did not shove others aside to get their point across. They were not arrogant, rude or pushy. They quietly went about their life, pursuing in a sacrificial way, a beautiful fragrance that all could enjoy. They kept nature in bounds and people were freed!

I simply wanted to start a conversation. I hope you can share your story.

Hebrews 12:14 Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord. (NLT, 2007)
